Thirstday – Crossed Leather – Look Book

Thirstday - Crossed Leather - Look Book

Ashia and I were doing the Saturday Sale last weekend and we pretty much did the whole list, which if you have ever seen that list it is huge, so definitely an achievement. We got to Psycho Barbie and I ended up taking home half the store, without any strenuous work on my part at all, the store is well designed to stay in one spot and just buy everything.

I picked up this Hades Corset and not only does it fit my body divinely, it does not show anything, the hair in front of my chest in this situation is just because I wanted it to, not to hide anything. So if you have been looking for something as strapping as this, definitely give it a demo, because it comes in sizes for many many bodies, and comes in 7 colours with metal options in silver, gold and black.

It all went with seamlessly into a theme, with these amazing lashes by Rainbow Sundae that are in this months Look Book, they are very wiry lashes incredible work and then crosses hanging from your lower lid, really well done. Then a light lip tint omega applier by Song, because they are inside of the lips shape, they will most likely fit any heads that have Omega.

The leather the crosses and then these fantastic leather mules by Utopia Designs, the leather straps are nice and wide, very supportive for such a high heel, and studded with metal, they make for some very fine footwear.

I am using another great backdrop by WearHouse that is dead end and it is a hallway of doorways that lead to a staircase, the shadows and lighting I was able to achieve in the space was perfect, and I like how it is a narrow space, so you don’t feel like you have to fill it with anything but yourself. With the heels on I was a bit taller than the doors but with them being linked parts, I was able to go into edit and stretch them on their own for the right look. Easy to use and I enough space and interest to use again and again.

A Second stab at this theming my days’ thing, and as I am a day ahead of most of Second Life, it will truly confuse people, especially when it only just 2 minutes past Midnight into my Wednesday as it is. I played around with the wording and realised that ‘When’ is such a cute idea, as it means I can kind of emulate anywhere in time if I so desire. This look kind of morphed into a very sort of mid 70’s California Love Child look. With some feathers atop my head, and some feathers tickling my toes, it all came together well. Especially as this crown of feathers fit so well over this lovely straight style by Mina Hair.

The very noticeable difference in the post is my eyes, I am usually green-eyed in Second Life because when I joined the brown eyes were so flat and dark that I just looked as though I had holes in my head and green eyes and the red hair I started out with work. I tend to not touch my eyes either, I have worn LeLutka eyes since as far back as they made their first set, and each time they made new ones, I would kick and scream and finally give in to changing. Today though I wanted to show the lovely eyes by Avi Glam that are part of this months Look Book. There is a nice selection of colours and they come in three sizes of appliers. I am also wearing some eyeshadow/highlight and lipstick by Flaws also part of the Look Book. The eyeshadow options come in either just eyeshadow or with a highlight that adds some nice subtle shine to your face.

I used the blend options in the LeLutka Head HUD to lighten both the lipstick and the eyeshadow because they are very rich by default, but as it was daytime, I wanted to just give them more of a there but so there look. Which is perfect for day and then up with the slider and boogie the night away.

This top is by Vinyl and even though it is more of a modernish casual vibe, it actually is very in keeping with clothing of the 70’s. I had a few tops as a girl with the full pocket front where you could hold your own hands, and the pulls at the neckline was also a very popular idea, as it meant that clothing could be shaped depending on mood with the ties rather than with a lot of structural sewing.

Then down to these amazing cut off shorts by Blueberry, that have so many options in the fatpack that you will spend so much time looking at your bottom and playing around with the options of prints, colours of denim and then the added bonus of being able to actually put writing on your front and back of your shorts. It would have been far too corny had I written Sasypants across my pants. The belt also has texture change options and both stores palettes make me happy with coordination powers.

These boots are just something that made me giggle at first, then take a lot more notice and then fatpack. I have seen this style in the past, it has been attempted a few times by different stores as far back as sculpts, however, each time I would be kind of intrigued they just didn’t pull me in. These did. The upper and fringe and sole have texture options, and there are even some prints, the suede work is incredible and the fringing and feather adornment fantastic, my only wish was that I could change also the thong portion as that would have made my colour combos play even harder. The fact that the feather had a hint of blue in it calmed me down though – I do wish that had texture change options too, but we cannot have everything and they are really wonderful very Aussie Centric footwear, thongs in freezing weather but with covering up the leg, perfect.

Lastly, I was going to town with some backgrounds by WearHouse who I have blogged in the past with makeup, I am also wearing their Dolly Lashes, so cute. This is a street scene prop and it comes with stackable versions as well as texture maps for the posters so you can make your own and electric boxes and footpath and road and it is just great and easy to be inspired by. I ended up getting at least 6 different ones so you will see more of those soon.

I like to ask things, does not mean I always get answered, but if it makes someone go ooo errrrr and actually do it themselves, that makes me happy.

How often do you use your teleport history and if you Blog or credit Photography, how often do you use it for Slurls? I use it all the time, not only to revisit somewhere but to grab the slurl on any event, or location store or otherwise that I have purchased something, knowing full well it is actually there because I was there buying it. The teleport history icon in firestorm is a genie lamp, if you do not see it at the bottom of your screen, then right click any of the icons down there choose toolbar buttons and then grab it and put it where it will best serve you.

You can type at the top any place you have been even going way back, and it will bring up a teleport option, right click it you will get the choice of teleport, more information or slurl, slurls are what we hyperlink so that your shopping is faster. More information will open the map which lets you also see if there are many on the sim already. The downside to it is that you search something it tells you you were there 6 days ago and you swear you were there yesterday and you realise your life is swooooshing past.

I was having a light hearted talk with myself earlier, I do that, and I decided that today was Shoesday, whether or not it will be at any other week is a mystery right now, but today it is. So the whole look started from the toes up and I love it, it is in all sense of the words just peachy. These adorable sandals by Ingenue, are a cork based delight, they are strappy but in the supportive way, they are cork based so they have that little retro thing going on, and they are so soft leathery looking they just made me happy.

Moving up to this adorable dress by Tee*fy that has a hud for changing the belt colours that was the perfect mix with the shoes, the dress also has amazing print options available, and I was standing there so long trying to decide which I liked best I almost wore them all – well technically I did as I went through them – I decided to bring some of the colour out more with these leggings by League that have appliers for your body and are still so pretty to wear. I cannot wait for baked on mesh just so I can wear the hell out of my league clothing again.

Accessories in the form of this beautiful bag by Baiastice really brought it all together for me, the cage of the bag has texture change options as well in the fatpack and the colours were perfectly in keeping with the palette. The bag also comes with hand hold, arm hold and shoulder holds, all for right side though, but not rigged so you can swap sides just not the animation part.

I am still enjoying the Anja skin by Pink Fuel in the current Look Book, with the addition of these natural lipglosses by Izzie’s that are so well suited to every daytime girly girl look. I do not often wear tattoos, but these lovely dandelion ones by Apocolyptic are very pretty and they are the guest of Vinyl at this round of Uber.

Happy Shoesday All♥

Look Book – Pink Fuel – Anja & LeLutka

Anja Chloe May Spencer

The June Look Book just launched and you can find some great options for Makeup, Mesh eyes and Nailpolish options, you can see the gallery here, or just grab the HUD directly from Marketplace and shop. I am featuring the Pink Fuel skin for LeLutka and it is something you need to make grabby hands at. It is shown in the ad on Simone, but I decided to give it a whirl on Chloe, Spencer and May. Chloe and Spencer are my usual go-to LeLutka heads, but as I do not wear May enough I decided she deserved a treat and Pink Fuel is always that.

Anja is a delightful face and it comes in two options with two brow styles, so really it is four options. Then included in the hud is the with or without blush brow choices in a huge variety as far as brow colours go, and then you also have a no brow option if you have other preferences. The second tab is the eyeshadows, you have different luxury colours to choose from with the option of a winged liner so that you save layer space, that Mochi is always thinking.

Then the third tab is my bliss, after the skin itself of course, but I am always a big fan of Pink Fuels lipsticks so to have them all here and present and accounted for, and then in the solid, gradient and dolly, I love the dolly, because with the LeLutka head HUD rerouting option you can stack dolly over lipstick as I have said before and get such a neat look.

Having the different heads also gave me a chance to show the different types of skin tones, three of the many available, and then also the body appliers that Pink Fuel does, with the regular, the athletic and the ripped. It also validated my need to have purchased this Bikini in three colours by Mimikri at this round of Uber, not that I ever need that kind of validation, but it is nice to wear them all so close to purchasing.

I took a run at the great Blush event last night also and got these elaborate nails by Pink Lion – all about the pink stores today. They are Bento and I am wearing the Slink version they also include Maitreya. The nail polish has lots of colour variants in the tropical theme, the flowers and leaves are just gorgeous and the rings have on and off options as well as metal choices, so much range and so detailed.

All my hairstyles are by Elikatira, and I tinted the band on the hippie style Juniper hair, so cute, all of them are just lovely styles to wear.

The year was 2006, I was roughly a month old, and I was at Gurl 6 buying my already probably 30th hairstyle…she made it easy, there were so many rooms of hair even then. I was in the process of buying a style when I saw in the ad the pretties black with pink detailing top. I IM’d Six Kennedy –  because I am an Aussie, and I did not know that that was not the normal thing to do – and I asked her where the top was from, she asked me to hold on and then next thing I knew I was sent the top from her inventory – back then more common to have things no copy – and it was called Princess, and was part of a set. I was so shocked that she would give it to me, she explained I was doing her inventory a favour as she never wore the same thing twice in ads – I think all of us wanted to be like Six. I told her that I would like to pay her for it and that I wanted to know where it was from at the least so that I could buy it from the store directly. The store was Pixel Dolls, the build was this very tall old Victorian looking build and you had to camera up and up and up to see everything – a bit like Bare Rose but not.

I was head over heels for this store, not only did a buy another colour of Princess, much love still to Six for the gift, and then went on to buy everything else in sight. The clothing was a mix of high glam, 1920’s flapper a bit of Gatsby before it was even trendy again, some latex and rubbery Aeon Flux kind of looks and just overall beautiful pieces, with velvets and heavy and luxurious fabrics. I wore a long tulle skirt from there often, with various tops and Asian influenced styles. Flexi and Glitch pants, but everything so feminine and beautiful. Then the store grew bigger and bigger, skins were available, she was the Queen of gargantuan SALES often reducing her entire store to 10L per item, we would go nuts. If she had a release it was more of a collection, empire style gowns, steampunk items top to bottom and everything in between. Her stores were majestic and I spent so many hours in them with Whimsy and Mel over the years.

Until today I thought she had left us, she did come and go a few times over the years, but I thought she was gone gone, but I found out today wrapped around some very sad news that she has had a store called The Muses for however long now, and mainly focusing on RP and Fantasy clothing…which as previously described was definitely her penchant. She has suffered a huge loss in her family and I am truly sorry for that, so Voshie Paine did a shout out encouraging people to go shopping and help out with much-needed funds going forward. Now it did not take me more than an inhale of breath to get onto Marketplace and demo the hell out of everything I could. Everything comes in so many body size options, that you should be covered, or in the case of some of the clothing uncovered. I got more than pictured, but I did just love these two pieces that I will end up wearing with other more casual pieces in future, the skirt is fabulous and the top with pants will be my thing.

I wish her al

Get Wet on a Weekday

Get Wet on a Weekday

I was lucky enough to be given early access to Uber a few hours ago, and on landing the inner circle literally floored me. I had to lay down to recover once I saw this boho fish shack collection by DRD. There was me laying the ground, if I had a brown paper bag I would have been breathing into it. If you haven’t realised yet I am water, ocean, fishy obsessed. This, however, does not mean just putting a fish on something, or a dolphin or waves will have me going giddy all the time – most of the time – but not all the time. But something like this set, well damn there is no amount of descriptive words that could truly do it justice. It is a big set, and well worth its price tag, but you can also purchase it in parts if you are on a budget or only feel the need for bits of it – that last part to me means you are crazy but not really judging, just a little judging. While I don’t completely lose myself in the shack set, there are other things there too, and it took a long turn around the place for me to get as much as I could carry.

Word of warning, I have discovered that my usual wear system layers to shop in and then try everything on and leave on the last demo you had on while you continue is not always safe, especially if you do not turn the layers back on. Today I experienced my first ‘TIMER DEMO’ mishap and wasn’t that pleasant! walking around standing in front of a booth and bam NAKED! next to a nice couple. I had actually even purchased the demo item I was wearing, but I had more shopping to do, but ending up naked from a timer demo is not cool, events are huge and they are laggy in some cases, and it is easier to stay in the demo until you change to the next demo. I understand the want to not have people use the demo for pics or whatever the case may be, but I for one would much prefer you attach a prim than have me end up naked in public…lesson learned though to return myself to my layered state before continuing.

Continue I did, picking up this gorgeous bikini by Slink that is a guest of the lovely Baiastice booth this round. The theme of the event is Summer Lovin and I sure had me a blast. This swimsuit is called Athena and with the right lighting has a perfectly shiny and somewhat wet look to it, which just worked perfectly with the droplets effect that comes with my body HUD and then the fantastic wet look hair by Mina that is an interactive style that actually gets wet from SL water. You even get a hairdryer that will blow it dry for you. Mina has actually also updated the hair to include a more versatile hud for picture taking so if not near the water you can still put it into a wet state, and it even has water particles that drip of it, so much fun. It is a system that was created by Salt & Pepper and they did a collaboration together, there is also a dress I picked up at Uber that goes wet also when worn in water.

The shoes I am wearing are by Reign also at Uber and have three options, flat, platform and tiptoe so can be worn with flat and high feet. The straps and soles have texture change options and they are nice rubbery soles so you don’t misstep when wet and walking around uneven surfaces.

Uber is just about to open its doors for another round, and this is the time of the year when each participant gets to invite a Designer friend to join them in their booth. I always like seeing not only who people pair up with, but how their styles merge. I was in the middle of taking pics when I realised that it was that day and funnily enough was already in the throes of using some items from a past Uber event. I remember this because I had a mini-meltdown standing there trying to decide what colour scooter I wanted and that there was no fatpack to just validate my reason behind having them all. How does one know what colour scooter is going to be the scooter at the moment, too much pressure? The helmet option colour I went with was bang on though, so even though I would totally ride an orange scooter wearing all black, I would also wear an array of many colours, the orange was the go to at the time.

I also loved that there was a loaded option, meaning you can get just the scooter and its beauty, or the loaded included with the stickers of locations been etc, and the bag and rug so that you can sleep by the roadside if you get stuck in some lonely highway.

The reason for my wanderlust ways, is this jacket that is at the current round of Shiny Shabby, this jacket is leathery brilliance, not only is it just a great looking mesh jacket with fabulous texture, but look at the detailing of the safety pins on the back, and my new hair by ItGirls with the options to have the hair look as though it has moved for pics like this was just perfect to showcase the back.

While getting the hair I also picked up two skins for LeLutka heads by ItGirls, this one gives me such fuller lips for the Chloe Head it is ravishing. The pants I am wearing with the jacket are by Blueberry, they are not Hourglass sizing though as the pants were out before the hourglass body was released. However because of my shape and the settings on the Slink HUD they work perfectly in XS Standard Sizing for me, so never go without something without trying it on, you may find that whatever sizes are available, it may still fit you depending on style.

I had actually opted for the dark grey in this jacket, because the black was black and the dark grey was more like a worn in black, and this is the kind of jacket you wear forever. The pants also had a dark grey option so perfect matches all around. I put together the scene with some cliffs and some sand I had laying around, some cars from events and it looks like I have found some like-minded travellers to meet up with.
